The 14th Annual Reva & David Logan Symposium on Investigative Reporting

Friday, April 24 – Sunday, April 26, 2020


After careful consideration and consultation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Logan Symposium.

The Logan Symposium is a vibrant event because we bring together a large number of journalists from across the US and abroad to meet and interact for three days, and we could not in good conscience potentially endanger anyone’s health and safety in the face of the developing global outbreak of COVID-19.

If you paid a registration fee and/or made a donation for this year’s event, we are offering two options:

1) We will apply your registration to the 2021 Symposium, or

2) We will fully refund your payment. Please request a refund by emailing ucberkeleyirp@berkeley.edu with the following information:
-Registrant’s name
-Registrant’s email address
-Amount requested (registration fee paid and/or donation included at time of registration)

We are aware that many of you have made work and travel arrangements in order to attend the Symposium. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Since 2007, the U.C. Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism’s Investigative Reporting Program has hosted a “by invitation only” symposium each spring in honor of the Reva and David Logan Foundation, which endowed the program.

The only symposium of its kind in the country, it routinely brings together a veritable “who’s who” of top journalists, law enforcement and government officials to address the critical issues confronting this specialized field. The symposium also unites media executives involved in both non-profit and commercial outlets, as well as media attorneys, academics, major foundations, and philanthropists who support journalism in the public interest.






Leading journalists, policymakers, academics, philanthropists and other will gather at the 2020 Logan Symposium to discuss topics that include “The Investigative Narrative,” Covering Wealth & Inequality,” “Do Facts Matter?,” “The Climate Crisis,” and “Reframing History,” and more.
